This isn't a film history blog but...
I know this isn't really a film History blog but my interests and intentions do run towards social history and media, particularly as it relates to American History so when I heard a session by Lydia Ainsworth on Dark Night of The Soul with Julie on WFMU I thought it relevant enough to post here. Ainsworth is a very modern composer, mixing samples of her own voice with found sounds and various classical instruments. Here she has scored a short piece for some footage filmed just mere weeks before the Great San Fransisco Earthquake of 1906 and I think it does a lot in such a short time and beautifully encapsulates the rush of modernism on a Victorian city.
Check her out at http://lydiaainsworth.com/ for more of her beautiful scores.
